In addition, goals and priorities of the Cancer Surveillance System are set by the Council through its Cancer Surveillance Committee. The System collects data on incidence, diagnostic stage, mortality, and risk factors for cancer. Through the Maryland Cancer Registry Advisory Committee, the System also uses the Maryland Cancer Registry as a tool to plan, evaluate, and target cancer control programs.
In November 2003, the Council presented its plan, The 2004-2008 Maryland Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan: Our Call to Action.
